That's a beautiful castle (and my new computer background! :wink: ). One of the things I love about Nilson and Hermy is seeing how Stan draws the European architecture. :)

All the books had a Stan sketch in them already :)

So, it is time to update my gallery as well :).

Finally, the original art of the Saga #7 tip-in plate has arrived, I’ve been waiting for this piece since April.
(The short story of how I found it: I was driving home in the usual Friday afternoon rushhour in Budapest. While I was waiting in a long queue, I was browsing Facebook on my phone and just that time Stan posted this art on his FB page. At first sight I knew that I needed this piece, it is so perfect. As soon as I got home, I contacted Stan about purchasing it and six months later it is on my wall.)

Image

The second piece is the tip-in art of Saga #2. I've always wanted a Jei piece, and found this one among Kyle's SDCC pictures (thanks again Kyle for your help in the buying process).

Image

I also got Saga #6 and #7.
This time I asked Julie to draw something for me in Saga #6, and she drew this amazing chibi Jei, thank You so much!! (as a bonus I got a head sketch as well from Stan).

Image

For the two watercolors I tried a new type of mat, called suede. It is hardly visible on the photos, but they have a very nice surface.
(Just a short notice: Nowadays I frame the arts myself (except cutting the mat and the frame, 'cause I don't have the tools). During the framing process I use only museum quality materials. If someone is interested how I do it, next time I can post a step by step tutorial with pictures.)

Those are some great looking frames. Congrats on a excellent artwork and I'm glad I could be a small part in helping you get that Jei!

That Jei sketch in your book by Julie is adorable. I can't wait to see her collaboration story in issue #160.

My recent purchase (it is awesome by the way, I absolutely love it) arrived a couple of days ago (after a long and expensive wait at the customs), so it's a good occasion to post a step by step about how I do a quality framing at home.
Here are the tools that I use:
Image

Metal rulers, masking tape, olfa mat cutter, olfa knife, Filmoplast P90 plus tape, pencil, rubber, nails, plier
And I forgot to add these to the picture:
Henzo photo splits, 100% acid free board, decorative matboard, greyboard, art ready frame, anti glare glass

So the first step is to buy an art ready frame (for example in IKEA). Ususally these frames come with a glass or plexi. I prefer anti-glare glass, so I asked a framer friend of mine to cut one for me. Musem quality glass (100% UV protection) is also a possibility, but it is really expensive and an art conservator friend of mine told me, that in a home environment it is unnecessary. Just don’t hang the art in direct sunglight, opposite the window, or above heat. The best place is a darker wall of the room. The more important thing is that only 100% acid free paper get in contact with the art. So next, I measure the inside of the frame, and cut two 100% acid free boards (usually these are called "museum rag"). One of them is going to be the backing board of the art, the other the inner mat. After it, I measure the image area of the art, and draw it on one of the boards. Then I cut the window with a mat cutter. It's very easy to slip, and the whole board is ruined, so I have to be careful.
Image
Image
Image
This mat going to be the inner one. For the outer mat, I use decorative matboard, in this case, a plush coated one. (Museum quality matboards are not so decorative, only white and its shades are available). I prefer when 0.5-1 cm (0.2”-0.4”) inner mat is visible, so I measure a bit bigger window than before, and cut the outer mat. When the cutting is ready, I stick together the inner and outer mat with henzo photo splits (the spilts are sticky on both sides).
Image
Image
The next step is hanging the art on the backing board. The best way is to use the so-called „T-hinge” method. It's very important to use only 100% acid free tape. Never, ever use cellotape, masking tape, etc. becuse those are very hamrful for an original art. Over time, the tapes will leak their residue into the paper, and it's very hard and expensive to restore it. I always use Filmoplast P90 Plus. This tape is specially designed for hanging art. 100% acid free, won’t harm the paper and removable. So I make the T-hinges (two on the top of the art).
Image
Image
I position the art in the frame and if everything looks good, put a greyboard in the back of the frame as a final backing. Then I push nails around it, they secure everything in the frame. Finally I apply masking tape around the back (it keeps the dust and bugs out).

The art is ready to hang 8)

Really nice, really impressive collection of art!

Love the piece by Koska Zoli, very unique style while still capturing Stan's spirit or essence (?)
